Scouts set up winter camp for children in Mill Hill
A group of Scouts launched their very own winter camp to entertain children in their school holidays.
Sixteen and 17-year-olds, Larah Yael Korrison, Emma Broderick and Elizabeth Broderick, took nine younger Scouts to camp last weekend in a bid to show them what fun, friendship and adventure you can have as you progress through the organisation.
Larah, 17, said: “It has been really fun working alongside my friends, with the support and advice from adult leaders. It has challenged us too, as we now understand how much hard work the adults put in to provide us with an exciting programme.”
Whilst their leaders offered guidance prior to the event, there were no adults present during the weekend at Frith Grange campsite in Mill Hill.
The team, who will receive a new badge for their efforts, worked with the younger Scouts on a variety of activities including film-making and whittling Christmas elves.
Deborah Rush, Scout Leader, said: “We are very proud of our Explorer Scouts. They have shown real leadership and responsibility in order to gain this badge. Young people are at the heart of our organisation, and we want to encourage them to step up and shape the agenda in the coming years.
“Therefore, we hope this weekend has inspired our Scouts to continue into Explorer Scouts and beyond as there is always more to learn, bigger adventures to be challenged by, and fun to be had.”
